[RC] Less than a week to go. - Lucy Chaplin Trumbull

Becky Hackworth:
OK, had to go look in the archives. What a hoot. I go back to at least '95 on Ridecamp, still have an "@" button (2 actually)

:) I've got a "@" bandana...

and I think it was '97 I first volunteered to do Webcast of Tevis.

No, it was later than that - maybe 98/99?

97 was the first year I took photos and put them up on the web -
to my knowledge the first time anyone did this - and I can still
picture exactly who came in the top ten and being big-round-eyed
at the finish in the dust...

Now it is 12 years later and I am once again getting ready for Tevis. Not as a rider but webcast volunteer once again.

Yay, Becky! A thankless task (remembering someone emailing me, all pissed, because the coverage was so bad - only to discover she had neglected to refresh her web browser and was viewing cached pages <g>), but a very appreciated one. Thanks all you webcast-ees this year for keeping our family and friends in the loop (my husband won't come to watch as he gets too uptight, so that's going to be the only way he gets to see if I'm still out there).

Who on here remembers our first official "webcast" suckers, er volunteers? I know Lynne Glazer was there and our own Brit Lucy....Who else?????

Linda Cowles? Julie Herrera?

They have gotten so good over the years. I have a lot to live up to this year. Heres to all of the riders and crew for this years' journey.

Yay us! (I'm so stoked about riding this year!!)

The weather is expected to be great this year. Mid 80's

? which weather forecast are you looking at? I've got 90 in Foresthill and 93 in Auburn... and probably warmer in the canyons where they forget to turn on any breeze.

(thank goodness for cooler weather, though - Roo and I paid
our dues by finishing Cache Creek back in the May heat wave
and I've never been so uptight about trying to get a horse to
pulse down at the end of a ride - do *not* want to repeat that
